Developers want to expand Miami-Dade County’s Urban Development Boundary by 316 acres in West Kendall to construct homes and industrial space.
Major development is not permitted outside the county’s UDB and the county doesn’t provide major services, such as water and sewer, there. The UDB has only been moved a handful of times over the past few decades, as environmental supporters strive to protect the wetlands to the west of Miami-Dade’s urban core. However, there are fewer swaths of vacant land left to develop in Miami-Dade while the population keeps growing, so there’s pressure from developers to move the UDB.
Hilco Redevelopment Partners (HRP), a unit of Hilco Global, just announced the purchase of an industrial development site located at 11002 Northwest S. River Drive in Medley.
The 8.5-acre property is part of a larger 25-acre Superfund site which has previously undergone corrective action. HRP has current plans to develop the site into a state-of-the-art warehouse/logistics facility to support the growing tenant demand across South Florida.
